Unify Occupy Boston
Discuss the principles leading to the structure of the General Assembly. Determine what it means to unify, and whether the Boston contingent of 'Occupy' is capable of prioritizing en masse in the aims of exemplifying a truly open forum.

Host the GA Online
"To form a more perfect mode of human governance, there must be established a forum to which all persons may apply for announcements, reviews, proposals, discussions, and voting. One must have access to a public, organized log of all relevant information to accurately assess any issue. The current iteration of the General Assembly does not - and more importantly cannot - provide this information in an efficient manner. The only vehicle capable of efficiently presenting this mass of information is a computer, and the only proper fuel is a network. We can use a simple wiki to determine many potential structures of a cyclical, online GA, and then determine the best methodology."

- Online Forum: Standard Procedures
- "The Online Forum - Demo will demonstrate the structure and process of a proposal in a forum. It is intended that this process be scalable by 'tiers'. Tiers will be designed to address various issues within an intuitive and ordered hierarchy. Working Groups are a first step in creating such a hierarchy, but they will require a re-design to effectively implement these proposals."

Forum Hierarchy (outdated?)
"The internet currently connects roughly 1 of every 6 persons. It is the primary vehicle by which we organize social movements. While there are pockets of fully connected/disconnected people, the diversity of voices known and represented expands rapidly. The internet implores in us an awareness of the sum of human knowledge; this is the Social Singularity. We must therefore organize a Global Forum dedicated to building upon that awareness, addressing the implications of a global, socially connected society. This will lead inevitably to the establishment of global working groups due to the naturally induced hierarchy of organized knowledge. This document suggests a possible commencement of that global forum."
